Hakima - Aseel Tayah

Next date: Thursday, 13 June 2024 | 09:00 AM to Friday, 13 September 2024 | 05:00 PM


Hakima is a multimedia installation that transports visitors into a sensory experience of the bustling markets, kitchens and serene landscapes of the Levant, inviting an exploration of the connections between the food we savor, the stories we tell, and the art that transcends time and borders. Each artwork is a window into the heart of the diverse cultures we are from, centering themes of food, culture and the timeless art of calligraphy to evoke the essence of 'home' in its many forms.

The Levant has a rich tradition of intricate script work that showcases the beauty and diversity of this timeless art form. From Ottoman Turkish to Arabic, the graceful strokes of the calligraphers' pens narrate tales of faith, poetry, and heritage.

The exhibition celebrates the artistry of preparing traditional dishes, as well as the communal spirit of sharing meals with loved ones. Food is not just sustenance here; it's a language of love, identity, and storytelling.
